How to get performance boost on Myriad X?


I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 on a UP Squared dual core Celeron 4/32 and I'm testing the Security Barrier Demo to see the speed increase going from a NCS 1 USB stick to the NCS 2 with the Myriad X processor. 

Performance appears identical.  Around 86ms for each device.

~/inference_engine_samples_build/intel64/Release$ ./security_barrier_camera_demo -i /opt/intel/computer_vision_sdk/deployment_tools/demo/car_1.bmp -m /opt/intel/computer_vision_sdk/deployment_tools/intel_models/vehicle-license-plate-detection-barrier-0106/FP16/vehicle-license-plate-detection-barrier-0106.xml -d MYRIAD

Output looks like this:

[ INFO ] InferenceEngine: 
	API version ............ 1.4
	Build .................. 17328
[ INFO ] Parsing input parameters

Any advice on what I should do to see a change in performance?  I assume a detection network has all the ingredients necessary to exploit the increased performance of the Myriad X.

My command line seems chopped, trying again...

./security_barrier_camera_demo -i /opt/intel/computer_vision_sdk/deployment_tools/demo/car_1.bmp -m /opt/intel/computer_vision_sdk/deployment_tools/intel_models/vehicle-license-plate-detection-barrier-0106/FP16/vehicle-license-plate-detection-barrier-0106.xml -d MYRIAD
